A Road that Twists

~

A road that twists around and round

with every step on wearing ground

I’m farther now from such reprieve

amid my dreams and what achieved.

And time has formed a hardened crust

around my heart that slowly bled

with twists and turns that lay ahead

where I’ll become the shifting dust.

Freedom

Freedom

~

What shall I do with all this freedom?

Time set between sunrise and sunset

and what I want and what could get

without leftover worries or obligations

unraveling a life with simplifications

for nothing I must do unless I choose,

nothing left to pay with years past due

if only one to love twenty four seven,

I can stretch around in my own heaven

and be the person I wanted to become

while madness around possessing some

when the only challenge to overcome

is what shall I do with all my freedom?

Dust Covered

Dust Covered

~

Won’t let old things gather around

covered in dust, forgotten by playful hands.

New every morning I leave behind the wants

when unfulfilled become old and stale

with the smell of failure I found

in the passing of time, empty time

marked by each inhale of life we hold

until no more, with each exhale

we learn to leave it behind.

Mundane

~

Mundane, I said and out of my element

but I learned to swim in rivers unknown,

does that makes me better?

I cannot return to the place I’m from

I cannot proceed if I don’t belong

and can only do imitated greatness,

does that makes me better?

If I close my eyes in the darkness find

maps to follow blind,

maybe a place like none

where I may belong,

will that make me better?

Puzzle

Puzzle

~

Piece by piece we come together

parts barely fitting with smooth edges,

hard to fit between the wedges

of tight closed fingers-

And life goes on, desire lingers

while weaving dreams that fell apart,

but piece by piece with ever part

we fit together we become clear,

year after year

a picture forms that we can see

a part of you, a part of me.

And every piece we place and match

in between love and pain we catch

a glimpse of heavens, if one last piece

with grace attach

to finish all in resting peace-

Lessons

~

I though reserved was love for each

somewhere kept easy to reach

at the right time-

I thought by right it would be mine

by asking once or twice

only to find there is a price

for letting go, to be alone

in sadness sown

while life shall pass

and love bypass-

I’ve learned that dreams

weaved in the dark will never gleam

and verses forged with greatest pain

will not retain

in every line the emotions bared,

and learned that life will not forgive

but always give,

only if we dared-

Life?

Life?

~

When does life ends? The final breath

the last heartbeat-

But what is life if we are not living?

If death is then the lack of breathing

does it define when we are alive?

The lack of love, to be alone

and not to feel every sunrise,

the passion gone

with blind defeat,

isn’t then life the same as death?

Done

~

Don’t you see? I’m done, fini, no more of this or that

of chasing dreams or chased in dreams –we call nightmares.

I’m done rehearsing for a dance that danced away

and left me undone – nobody cares

if rainbows shine after the rain,

if clouds have shapes or trees do sway

with tunes we ignore – since deaf we are.

I’m done with love that hides away

the wasted times in search for more

and always wanting to return – what was before

for nothing matters, nothing stay-

I’m done with all, with this or that

with many things I tried to be

but not with life or life with me.
